After his episcopal ordination as the bishop of Mackenzie–Fort Smith, Vatican Radio spoke to Canada's newest prelate. The bishop pointed out that:

"The north is a place of tremendous blessing...but it is also a place where one needs to be aware that the quiet and emptiness of the north…is holy and, in a good sense, wonderfully terrible.

You hear God’s voice and you confront yourself in a whole new, profound way. If you will, the silence shouts out at you. So, I’m looking forward to…that experience and to the next path of growth and holiness that the Lord calls not only myself but the diocese that I’m called to serve there.”
